    Folks,

    The Nordic DO has four extremely unique opportunities up for grabs. The Captain has given us permission to seat a person in the cockpit jumpseat during take of and landing for the two flights. That's right, while illegal in North America, its at the Captains discretion for our flights.

    If you win a take off spot, you'll be seated in the cockpit before taxi and be in the cockpit till the Captain turns off the seatbelt sign after take off. If you win a landing spot, you'll be seated before the seatbelt sign goes on and till the plane is parked safely at the gate/tarmac.

    Now you can bid and secure your spot for this experience! The proceeds of course goes to charity.

    Bidding: the top four bids will win the experience.

    Bidding closes at 4PM Central time on Monday 16th

    Post your bid in this thread, time stamp wins

    Let the fun begin!

    Do you want us to specify take off / landing? And whether it is flght 1 or 2?

    Or highest bidder chooses, then next takes their preference from what's left, etc?

    At post 14 18 23 44, by my reckoning (ie completely unofficial and rely on at your peril), you needed to bid more than $400 $401 $475 $699 to be successful.

    This is correct. To break into the top four, a bid currently needs to be higher than $400. A few of us are keeping spreadsheets, I'm sure ;)
